Overview

Exploring the status of feminism in this "postfeminist" age, this sophisticated meditation on feminist thinking over the past three decades moves away from the all too common dependence on French theorists and male thinkers and instead builds on a wide-ranging body of feminist theory written by women.These writings address the question "Where are we going?" as well as "Where have we come from?" As evidenced in the essays compiled here, the multiplicity of directions available to this new feminism ranges from poststructuralist academic theory through cultural activism to re-readings of law, literature, and representation. Contributors include Mieke Bal, Lauren Berlant, Rosi Braidotti, Elisabeth Bronfen, Judith Butler, Rey Chow, Drucilla Cornell, Ann Cvetkovich, Jane Gallop, Beatrice Hanssen, Claire Kahane, Ranjana Khanna, Biddy Martin, Juliet Mitchell, Anita Haya Patterson, and Valerie Smith. Feminist Consequences, representing the forefront of international feminist thought, marks a new and long-desired stage of feminist criticism where women are themselves making theory rather than reacting to male production.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The essays compiled here address the questions "Where have we come from?" and "What characterizes feminism now?" In response to the contentious and splintering term "postfeminist," the editors strive to demonstrate that feminism lives by building on a wide-ranging body of feminist theory written by women. The collection is divided into four sections: Whatever happened to feminism?; the ethics of affect; the pleasures of agency; and where to feminism? The 17 contributors are academics in women's studies, literature, rhetoric, media studies, and other disciplines in the US and Europe. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

The book's range is impressive, and so is [Elisabeth] Bronfen's totalizing ambition to make connections across time and space...
